Substance and serenity, stunning ocean views, and spacious privacy add up to a grand Cape Cod contemporary compound near the end of a cul-de-sac above Zuma Beach. Surrounded by more than 1.7 acres of exquisite manicured grounds and cultivated gardens, the gated residence offers an abundance of settings for indoor-outdoor entertaining, recreation, and relaxation.
From the fan light over the front door to the high ceilings, rich hardwood floors, and custom cabinetry, the home is handcrafted with simple elegance highlighted by the lavish use of large windows. The main floor comprises the living room, with a fireplace, wraparound windows, and French doors to the patio; a gourmet country kitchen with an island and bar seating; a huge dining room with coffered ceilings, marble fireplace and plenty of room for a piano; a family room with a fireplace; a gorgeous library/office with floor-to-ceiling library shelving; a lovely guest suite; and two powder rooms.
Upstairs, three en-suite bedrooms include the ocean-view primary retreat, complete with fireplace, sitting room, dual walk-in closets, a luxurious marble and tile bathroom, and a private view deck. The other bedrooms have a separate study and play space.
Generous outdoor areas with magnificent trees and vast lawns include an expansive private front yard for parties and picnics, while at the back of the house, a wraparound patio and portico provides multiple spaces for al fresco dining and convivial gatherings with ocean views. There is a separate gym/yoga studio with a deck overlooking the gardens, a large swimming pool with a wide deck for lounging, expanses of green lawn, and a sweet patio area complete with firepit, hammock, barrel sauna, and illuminated tree for evening gatherings. A spectacular garden bed with dozens of dramatic bird of paradise plants sits at the edge of an enormous irrigated garden that is both privacy buffer and choice fruit and vegetable source. The home also has a three-car garage plus ample guest parking.
Beautifully updated and maintained, this a property of exceptional quality and character in an entirely unique Malibu setting.
